Ways To Modernise The Exterior Of Your Home

When upgrading the home, people tend to neglect and not modernise the exterior.

However, the exterior is the first thing visitors see when they arrive. Moreover, first impressions make a massive difference. Modernise the exterior of your home to enhance a refurbished interior or to lay the foundations of the home.

Modernise The Exterior Doors

Your front door says a lot about your home. Moreover, it’s one of the easiest ways to upgrade the exterior of your home. 

You can switch out a uPVC door for a composite or wooden door instead. Furthermore, there are a plethora of colour options to choose from, including modern blacks, greys and blues.

Add a neat door knocker or fancy door number in your fanlight too to really emphasise your home.

The style of roofing on your home can be a tell-tale sign of how old your property is. Consider modernising your roof with Spanish roof slates or tiling to give the exterior of your home a fresh feel.


Modernise the exterior of your home by updating your driveway. Simple things like maintaining its appearance can go a long way. Be sure to de-weed or rake the stones. Furthermore, you can go as far as resurfacing the driveway to add a contemporary touch.

Modernise The Exterior Gates

If you have a front gate, you will want to make sure it’s in good working order and not hanging off its hinges. The gate is one of the first things your visitors will have to interact with – so make it a positive experience. 


Create a beautiful front garden that you can be proud of. However, you need to be sure you can maintain it all year round to keep your home looking lovely. Clip and edge any grass, or create a vibrant flowerbed to line the front of your home. 

Make sure that when you modernise the exterior of your home, you keep it exciting and refreshing to reap the benefits for years to come.
